Having made a name for herself in her native Britain with her debut album ‘Travelling Like The Light’, which became one of the most synced albums of 2010/2011 with its catalogue
consistently maintaining solid income through syncs within film, digital and television today, an effervescent slice of singer, songwriter, producer, and model Vanessa “VV” Brown hit wider
shores in 2011 with her smart, intuitive fusion of pop and electronica that shined particularly bright on such tracks as the hit single “Shark In The Water.” Shark in the water went on to
selling over half a million records in the US and a number one record in France. VV engaged in Television appearances on David Letterman, Carson Daly, Jimmey Kimmel live, BET Girls
Rock, Ellen Degeneres and many more. Leaving an exciting visual trail of video clips, fan-posted television, online, and festival appearances all over cyberspace, VV proved herself to be a
luminous presence, vocally, visually, and creatively. VV Brown toured extensively within the US supporting Maroon 5 and Little Dragon. In 2012 she embarked on her own headline tour.
Aside from her musical rise to fame, VV became the first black British woman to front an ad campaign for renowned U.K. retailer Marks & Spencer, which she landed thanks to her highly
developed sense of personal style. Now this multi-talented songstress, who hails from Northampton, England, is quickly becoming a respected entrepreneur with her own online vintage
fashion business: VVVINTAGE.com, paving the way for emerging designers across the globe.
